iron oar a lot. >> let's get more insight from steve from web bush securities. how much of a nail biter is this for you in terms of fiscal cliff and the markets? >> i think pretty clear at this point that if there's a deal coming, it's gonna be coming very, very soon. i think the markets discounted the fact we are going to get some sort of deal t has held up fairly well here and i think if we don't get a deal, we will see a selloff. i don't know how considerable, but certainly see the 2, 3% decline in the market. >> does it amaze you, steve, that the markets, in your view, still consider a given that we are going to reach a deal? here we are thursday, december 27th. they still haven't issued a 48-hur notice for congress to return to capitol hill and yet you're saying the markets have baked in some sort of deal? >> yeah, i think so. i don't in he isly think the deal happened december 31st. if we pass waite without a deal earthquake the market will think something is going to happen in early january this is the way washington works, they walk right up to the edge of the deal, maybe even p

the fiscal cliff. let's get to our senior economic reporter, steve leesman, with his predictions for the economy in 2013. >> reporter: >>> trying to figure out what's going to happen in 2013 depends on one very important development -- whether the u.s. goes over the fiscal cliff in a few days' time, and for how long. if it's avoided, there's considerable upside for the economy. we could see at least one and maybe two quarters of growth above 3%. the kind of growth that would put people back to work and lower the unemployment rate. why? because business has been holding back investment amid the uncertainty. unleashing business spending would add to the growth from the nascent rebound in housing and from the consumer who has hung in there despite tough times. in fact, we could see unemployment drop below 7%. although it might first rise, more work into the work force who have been discouraged but can't find work. then could it fall. as for the fed, i think the market may be overstating its expectations for assets purchased from the central bank in 2013. at the current pace, the new

sincere steve. we're focusing on buying at the top. nothing more arrogant than when an insider backs up a truck for his own stock, sitting at a 52-week high. they are saying we know we rock, and we're so confident it will keep going higher, we'll buy stock hand over fist, not waiting for a pullback. buying what looks like to be the high. arrogant, sure, but bankable uverse, and there are notable exceptions occupying the wall of shame. let's assume they know what they are doing. not everyone deserves the benefit of the doubt in this business, and after the financial crisis at the end of 2008, i know a lot of people think ceo execs are fraud, crooks, liars, especially those of you who got burned on lehmann brothers. that's the wrong lesson to draw from the crash. healthy skepticism is one thing. a total unwillingness to believe anything positive is something entirely different. if you are going to own stocks, you need to be willing to extend some measure of trust to those who run the companies. getting their stock to a 52-week high and buying a bunch of shares is pretty darn good reason t
